Fire Reported At Home Where Johnny Cash Lived

Hendersonville, Tenn. (AP) -- Firefighters are battling flames in a major fire at the home of the late country singer Johnny Cash.

Dispatchers say all but one of Hendersonville's engines had responded to the fire in the suburb northeast of Nashville.

Cash and his wife June Carter Cash lived at the home until their deaths in 2003.

Barry Gibb, a member of the Bee Gees, bought the lakefront property in January 2006.

Hendersonville Fire Department officials say construction crews were working there when the fire started. The cause is unknown.

No injuries have been reported.
